12 Months of Giving is a new initiative where you can give monthly, weekly, or yearly via credit card (we are looking into a direct debit solution as well). Many donors find it easier on their budget to spread their donations out throughout the year instead of one lump sum annually. But, they don’t do it because their lives are too busy to remember to make that payment monthly.
Just sign up below and you’ll be able to control how and when you give. Also, if your circumstances change and you need to adjust your donations accordingly, you can do so.
How does this initiative help the food pantry? Well, we receive most of our funds in December. Like for-profit businesses, we need a consistency in income to survive. Having to spread all our funds from December out over the course of the next year makes it difficult to purchase items as they are needed. Additionally, the economic climate has been changing rapidly and as a result the pantry’s needs and donations been fluctuating wildly. Our slim times are becoming unpredictable so it’s extremely difficult to say how we should be adjusting our month-to-month budgets to make things work.
With your recurring donation, you give us the tools we need to fight food insecurity all year long.
